MOSAIC on ELT will carry out the first statistically significant survey of the chemo-dynamical properties of dwarf galaxies at 1 < z < 3, when the Universe was less than half its current age. The unrivalled visual acuity, sensitivity and multiplexity of the spectrograph will allow the study of spatially-resolved chemical inhomogeneities in large samples of high-z dwarfs. Their chemical maps, further complemented with detailed kinematic information of the ionised gas across the galaxy shall uncover the presence of infall-driven, turbulent star formation, as well as reveal the imprints of energetic outflows from supernovae.
